Race to the King Ultra Marathon
24th & 25th June 2017

South Downs Double Marathon

Walk, jog or run 53.5-miles along the stunning South Downs Way to the burial place of the first Kings of England

Race to the King is a fully supported 53.5-mile ultra marathon challenge. The breathtaking route starts near Arundel in West Sussex and runs through the South Downs National Park until you reach the climactic finish on the steps of Winchester Cathedral. Whether you are an elite ultra-runner or a weekend walker looking to raise money for charity you will race through some of the finest scenery in the UK with views stretching across Southern England and out to sea.

You can run or walk the route and can also choose to complete the challenge non-stop or break it into two days staying at our overnight basecamp. Both the start and finish are easily accessible and it’s the ideal ultra-distance challenge for those looking to take their first step beyond a marathon..

Want that extra motivation to get to the finish line. Why not fundraise for event charity, Save the Children. The money you raise will help them transform the lives of children in some of the world’s toughest places. Either buy your own place and fundraise what you can or take one of their reduced rate places and commit to a fundraising target.
